There’s a section of our living room near the built in shelving that I like to call our reading nook. It’s a place for displaying my DIY, decorating, home improvement book collection. A place where I enjoy curling up and flipping through the pages of the latest issue of my favorite home magazines.
Things to consider when creating a reading nook:
Bookshelves or bookcases are a must-have for display and organization. In our home, I use a section of built-ins in the living room.
Comfortable seating. I chose two Nico Accent Chairs by Sauder. I love the sturdiness, traditional design, durable linen fabric and fun print in neutral colors with nailhead trim for completing the look and function in this space.
Lighting: Everyone knows that reading in the dark was bad for our eyes, right? You’ll want to make sure there’s some sort of adequate lighting to provide a bright atmosphere for reading. I currently use a pole lamp but would love to incorporate some wall mounting lighting.
Accessories: A collection of books (and/or magazines) of course,
a warm comfy throw,
a foot stool (I’m still scouring estate and yard sales), coordinating accent pillows
and a few decorative accents that reflect your style.
Everything needed to inspire quiet time and reading. It’s my favorite spot in our living room, a little library corner.

Do you have a designated reading space in your home? Do you have any tips to add for creating a quiet comfortable space?
